  10. thanks for all the help people much appreciated. I will have a look at the mcamera and go again!
  11. i am finding this hard to master i have the above mentioned camera with proper connecter and wondered what else i could be doing wrong still same results. should i use the barlow etc i cant seem to zoom in with the camera as i had to take the zoomer off the front and attach the camera straight to scope. sorry i am a complete notcie at this and am probably just going too far forward into taking piccys before i even fully understand the scope! just promised my grandad a good piccy of the moon for him!
